Final Round, Two Contenders Standing
October 25, 2013- Winchester, Va.- Pete Neal gets it done and scores his 6th win of 2013. The Series provided an awesome night capper at the 1st Annual Gunter's Honey Fall Classic at Winchester Speedway. In heat race action the 20 car of Steve Cantwell got the job done in the first heat race. Cantwell battled early with Woodbridge Va. Neal Reamer, Reamer took the early lead and relinquished the top spot to Cantwell who took the race win. In heat race #2, it was Pete Neal who had the early lead only to run into trouble in turns 3 and 4. The 578 of Matt Wallace battled the 07 of Charlie Summers and Wallace came away with the heat win. The Winchester Scrap feature event was set and the field was led to the green flag by the 20 car of Cantwell and the 7 of Reamer. Things quickly heated up with the 7 car of Reamer jumping to the early lead, Cantwell applied pressure then was joined by the 07 of Charlie Summers. Summers battled and gained position on the 20 of Cantwell and set his sights on the 7 car. The two point contenders were busy working up from the back of the pack, Pete Neal caught a break and capitalized to crack into the top five. A rare caution flag came out which racked the field for a final push to the checkers. Reamer lead the field to the cone followed by the 07 of Summers and the tough 20 car of Cantwell. At the restart Pete drove into one hard and followed the top two down the back stretch. Pete threaded the needle and powered past the 07 and the 7 car to take the lead taking the 20 car with him. The 578 of Wallace was looking for real estate and raced with the 07 and 7 car only to run out of laps finishing 4th. The 20 car of Cantwell hit his marks and was able to stay ahead of the 7 car and gain the position on the 07 of Summers. Pete Neal turned up the wick and drove home to victory besting the field. Pete was joined in victory lane by John McGarvey representing Winchester Scrap. A big thank you goes out to Winchester Scrap and their support of the Series.

The 2013 point championship will once again come down to the final race of the season. Pete Neal drove to victory to claim the top spot from the defending point champion Matt Wallace. Wallace coming off a win at Susquehanna Speedway Park started scratch with a slim 5 point lead over the 21A of Neal. With the feature win, Pete regained the top by a slim 10 points over Wallace. Pete's win will handicap him to the 13th starting position next Saturday for the season ending race at Susquehanna Speedway Park. He will be a racer on a mission, you will want to be there to see how this one ends. Will it be Wallace with his third consecutive championship or will Pete Neal pick up his first Classic Racing Series point championship. In one week the final round will start, the checkered flag will fly, and the 2013 champion will be crowned.

In the end it was Matt Wallace putting his #578 on the front stretch, picking up the trophy and the Rock-It Pizza winner's sub!  The feature finish now puts Matt Wallace 5 points ahead of Pete Neal with 2 races remaining, this championship couldn't get tighter!  The Series ran green to checkers once again for both the heat races and the 20 lap feature event proving give and take along with talent makes for exciting racing.  Everyone would like to thank Larry & Jake from Miller's Racing Parts for all of their help with the division and letting us be a part of their special event.

Pete Neal Wins the 40 Lapper at Path Valley

Spring Run, PA- Pete Neal has Path Valley Speedway Park figured out. The 21A was triumphant in the 40 lap feature event last Saturday night giving him his 4th win at the Park. With some heavy hitters breathing down his neck Neal jumped to the early lead and felt some serious pressure when he bobbled in the center of 3 and 4 maneuvering around some lap traffic. The 87 of Roland Brown and the 578 of Matt Wallace pounced on the opportunity and swarmed the leader going into turn one. The field was three wide and the real estate was at a premium, Wallace poked his nose under the 21A and Brown swung to the outside. The 87 of Brown, while on the high side, lost the bead on the right front bringing out the only caution of the event. Neal led the field after the restart and set the pace to the checkers. Wallace charged late to bring the 578 home second followed by rookie Ryan Arnold in the #1 Cycle Center 91 machine. Some of the best action on the track was between the 20 of Steve Cantwell, the 07 of Charlie Summers, and Series newcomer Jody Yearick in the 81. These guys battled lap after lap swapping positions and displaying the ultimate give and take. Cantwell cleared the 07 to finish fourth and Charlie Summers rounded out the top 5.

The Series gets right back to it on Friday, September 20th at Trail-Way Speedway. Come out and join the Series as the 2013 racing season begins to wind down.

2 Days 2 Races 2 New Winners
The teams rolled into Trail-Way Speedway on Friday August 30th for a very special event. The evening marked the inaugural running of the Lyle Adcock Memorial. Aside from being a long time car owner in the Series, Lyle was a true friend to everyone in the pits. He was a huge asset to the Series, serving on the board of directors along with helping out where ever he could, without expecting a thing in return. Lyle has been missed greatly and this race was one that held a special place in everyone's heart. With Lyle's friends and family in the stands, the teams hit the track for another exciting night of racing. Early on it was the #9 of Brandon Little and the #87 of Roland Brown taking the heat race wins. When the green flag dropped, Little was able to put the #9 machine out front and pull a sizable lead. While Little worked his way through lapped traffic, the #21 of Kurt Welsh made his way up to 2nd, but had little hope of reeling in the #9 in time. With 2 laps remaining, the caution flag flew, bunching up the pack. A two lap shoot-out was set for the end of the 21 lap feature, but in the end it was Brandon Little bringing home his first win of 2013 in the #9 machine. The #21 of Welsh was followed by Joe Snodgrass in the #34. The 21A driven by Pete Neal crossed the line in fourth. Matt Wallace in the #578 rounded out the top 5.

Many people pitched in to make this a special event. We would first of like to thank Lyle's friends and family for being part of such a special occasion. The Series would like to thank the following sponsors for their support on this great event, Bob Evans, Freedom Septic, Main Street Builders, and JMY Services. With their help, we were able to put on a spectacular evening for fans and racers alike.

On Saturday night the Classic Racing Series jumped right back into action at Susquehanna Speedway Park. The fans were treated once again to some great door to door action at the York County Nationals. Bill Brown Jr. in only his second race out this year, tweaked by the 87 of Roland Brown to score his first 2013 win in the Creekside Auto Sales 20 lap feature event. It was a true drag race off of turn 4 and for the second time this season, the official scorer was needed to call the winner. Bill Brown Jr. was joined in victory lane by the 87 of Roland Brown and the 20 car of Steve Cantwell. Pete Neal posted another 4th place finish and Charlie Summers has once again found the handle on the 07 machine rounding out the top 5. There were battles throughout the field racing two and sometimes three wide in the turns. Series point leader Matt Wallace ran into some problems when he tangled with the 21 of Kurt Welsh. Welsh was penalized to the rear for rough riding and Wallace could not continue. Heat race competition saw Bill Brown Jr. and Steve Cantwell picking up the wins.

This season may be quickly winding down but the intensity is not. The 2013 championship is tight with Pete Neal just 35 points behind defending champ Wallace. Charlie Summers starting to show some muscle, sits in third place. And the 09 driven by Ron Grove is showing some consistency and it is paying off with a solid 4th place in the standings.

The Series would like to once again thank our race sponsors, Rock-It Pizza and Subs for their support and subs that are presented to our race winners. Be sure to stop by, pick up some good food, and thank them for their involvement in the Series. Creekside Auto Sales located in Dover stepped in and allowed the Series to market that everyone gets financed at Creekside.

Neal Owns Path Valley Speedway Park

In his victory lane interview Neal was asked about his championship run, he replied "anything can happen". Neal has mastered the Spring Run 1/4 mile bullring picking up his third win at the track.

Grove worked the high banks and drove home 2nd followed by the 20 car of Steve Cantwell. Charlie Summers fought hard to hold onto his 4th place finish helping him to retain his 3rd place point standing. Some of the best action on the track was for the 5th place position. Neal Reamer battled the Series point leader Wallace for a handful of laps. Door to door through the corners Wallace was finally able to just slip past the strong 7 car of Reamer to round out the top five.

"Too Close to Call!" Wallace wins over Brown to claim the 2nd annual Bill Bollinger Memorial at Hagerstown Speedway.
After being rained out for the annual event in late June, the teams headed back to the famed Hagerstown Speedway with nothing but sun in the sky.  The event honoring Bill Bollinger who had done so much for the class in its early years, is a high mark for anyone in the Series and a race that everyone wants to win.  At the beginning of the night it was the #9 of Brandon Little holding off a hard charging #34 of Joe Snodgrass for the win in heat race #1, and the #578 of Matt Wallace showed he knew how to get around the big 1/2 mile bringing home the win in heat race #2.  The stage was set for an action packed feature event, with Little and Wallace on the front row, and a host of hungry competitors behind them.  Wallace won the drag race into turn one putting his #578 in front of the #9 of Little.  Little was able to hold onto the 2nd spot for a few laps before a hard charging Joe Snodgrass #34 and Roland Brown #87 made their way to the front.  At the end it came down to a door to door, wheel to wheel shootout between Wallace and Brown. At the checkers, it was "To Close to Call", the crowd was in anticipation due to the close margin of victory, the chief flag man had to consult with the speedways official scorer in the booth high above the speedway to confirm the feature winner. After official confirmation, it was Matt Wallace picking up the victory over Roland Brown, indisputably the closest finish ever seen in the Series.  #34 Joe Snodgrass, #9 Brandon Little, and #112 Steve Clemo rounder out the top five. Notables- nice job by Steve Clemo for putting the 112 in the top five his first night of competition in his new car, Steve Cantwell wheeled the 20 car home to a 7th place finish after starting 13th. 

The Series welcomed Cindy Bollinger along with her children, their spouses and grandchildren to victory lane. Appreciation was given to Cindy and her family for the contribution that Bill had made to the Series. John McGarvey along with Joseph Smith Industries were proud to sponsor the action packed, caution free night of Classic Racing Series racing.  McGarvey presented the winners check in victory lane to Wallace who was surrounded by his unmistakable fan club all wearing their pink 578 shirts with pride. A special appearance by Mag was also noted in the group of fans that swarmed the 578 machine.
 
Once again, the Series put on another spectacular show without bringing the caution out one time throughout the entire night. A special thanks to the entire Hagerstown Speedway establishment for putting on a great show for the fans and for providing an awesome venue for the drivers.

The 20 lap Charlie's Bobcat Service feature event began with the 87 of Brown inside the current Series point leader Matt Wallace, at the drop of the green it was Brown with a two car advantage over Wallace heading into turn one. The 87 Straight Up Custom Homes machine was flawless throughout the nonstop feature event and a mere 6:31:82 minutes later Brown was enjoying the fruits of his labor.

Pete Neal was the hardest working driver, after starting scratch and clawing his way up to a third place finish.

Pete Neal gets it done, putting the #21A in victory lane at Path Valley Speedway
The Classic Racing Series once again made the trip north to Path Valley Speedway for some high banked 1/4 mile action. With the area getting rain for two days before the event, the track was sure to be heavy and tacky. With the "tear-off's" stacked high, drivers hit the fast and tacky 1/4 mile for their heat races with Pete Neal #21A and Matt Wallace #578 taking home the heat race victories. By the time the feature rolled around, the track had not lost much moisture. The stage was set for a fast paced, action packed feature. There were battles for virtually every position on the track except for one, as Pete Neal was able to space himself out from the rest of the pack. Roland Brown, Brandon Little, Charlie Summers, and Neal Reamer rounded out the top 5.

The win by Pete Neal tightens up the points race once again, Matt Wallace holds onto a slim 25 point lead over Neal. Charlie Summers has been coming on strong, his consistency has placed him third in points just 65 behind the leader.

Wallace chalks up another one at Susquehanna Speedway Park
The 578 of Matt Wallace bounces back from a tough run at Path Valley to score the win at Susquehanna Speedway Park last Saturday night. The Mt. Airy Coating/Wally's Iron Works machine ripped off an impressive heat race win to land the pole position for the Pancho's Racing Products feature event. Roland Brown in the 87 Straight Up Custom Homes sponsored ride started along side Wallace for the 20 lap showdown. Wallace got the advantage and never looked back. Steve Cantwell in the 20 car quickly jumped to the 2nd position and had his sights set on the Series point leader. Cantwell slipped and allowed the 34 car of Joe Snodgrass to sneak past coming off turn 4, Snodgrass took the Bedrock Sand and Gravel 12 car with him. The 07 of Charlie Summers was coming hard and simply ran out of laps as the checkers waved. Wallace thanked Pancho's Racing Products along with his new friends at Rock-It Pizza and Subs in victory lane. "I love left side weight" Wallace screamed in victory lane. The Main Street Builders 34 car along with Jim Crocker, substituting for his new wheel man, Vincent Crocker, joined the celebration at the flag stand. Cantwell held off Summers for 4th and Roland Brown finished up 6th.

Notables, the Series is fresh with new talent. Gov Yearick made his 2013 racing debut with the Series with his brand new 48 car. Newcomers Ryan Arnold and Stew Arndt made the trip from State College, PA to join the Series for their first taste of dirt track racing. Kurt Bangs jumped in the Grove #56 machine and ran a great race. Steve Clemo continues to improve as he knocks off the rust and gets his timing down with the Series.

 Path Valley Beats the Rain, Neal Beats the Competition
After an uncertain day of rain, Path Valley Speedway Park salvaged a great day of racing. The teams rolled into the speedway to find awesome race conditions. With a perfect track, the fans were treated to some great racing from the Series. Heat race #1 had the 87 of Roland Brown out front with the 21a of Pete Neal close in tow. With a pass on the front stretch at the checkers it was almost to close to call but the 21a prevailed with the win. Heat race #2 would prove to be just as intense. The 07 of Charlie Summers gave up the early lead to Matt Wallace, Summers battled back to take the top spot and brought the 34 car of Joe Snodgrass with him. Summers scored his 2nd heat win in as many weeks. In the 20 lap feature event the field was lead to the green by Neal and Summers. Neal jumped to the early lead and fought every lap to hold the top spot. Summers searched early for a way to the front but found himself in the cross hairs of the 34 of Snodgrass. Snodgrass worked to close the gap when a late race caution came out for the 87 of Roland Brown who suffered a broken upper control arm. With 4 to go, Snodgrass worked to set up the 21a for a run to the checkers. Joe was able to run in hard on the top but was unable to gather the needed momentum to complete the pass on the 21a. Pete Neal finished the job and brought home his first win of 2013. Snodgrass, Summers, Cantwell, and Wallace round out the top five positions. 
 
The teams will take off a well deserved week before returning to Susquehanna Speedway Park on May 25th. 4 races and 3 different winners, the Series is proud of the depth of talent and looks forward to a year of exciting race action.

Wallace starts the season off strong, grabbing his 2nd win in a row!
The teams headed South for their first 2013 appearance at Winchester Speedway in Virginia on Saturday night. Another of the high banked, fasted paced tracks on the Series schedule, fans were sure to get an exciting show. The action started early, with tremendous battles for the top spots in the heat races, they were a prelude to the action that was to be seen in the feature. From the drop of the green in the feature it was a battle for the lead between the #21A of Pete Neal and the #07 of Charlie Summers. The two raced side by side, door to door, as the entire field behind them were doing the same. Every spot on the track was up for grabs, drivers jockeying for position from the front to rear. The three rookies in the division, Vince Crocker #12, Dan Little #29, and Steve Clemo #88 all showed that their seat time is paying off, putting on impressive races in their early careers. With all the side by side racing, Matt Wallace was able to sneak his #578 up to 3rd from his 13th starting position (due to his win the week before). The #21A and the #07 were still locked in a battle for the lead, and Wallace closed in making it a three way battle for the top spot. When the checkered flag fell and the dust settled, it was Matt Wallace bringing the #578 home in first. Pete Neal, Neal Reamer, Brandon Little, and Ron Grove rounded out the top 5. Awesome performances were turned in by three notable drivers, Charlie Summers posting his first heat race win in his fresh 07 machine, hats off the Neal Reamer in his impressive podium finish, and Ron Grove in the 09 car drove a great race to his 5th place finish.


The event, sponsored by Winchester Scrap Metal, marked the first of 3 races of the season at the excellent facility in Winchester Virginia. A special thanks also is in order to the Stultz family, their continued involvement in motorsports is appreciated.


A special thanks to Greg Gunter and his entire staff at Winchester Speedway. They have done a remarkable job in revitalizing the speedway and it looks like there is more to come. Check your calendars, pencil us in, and come out to see some great racing action.

Wallace Scratches for Traction to Claim his First Win in 2013.
The teams rolled into Path Valley Speedway for the 2nd event of the 2013 season. Fresh off a green to checker feature race at Susquehanna Speedway Park for the season opener, the teams had a week to prep their cars for the high banked 1/4 mile at Path Valley. The Classic Racing Series has put on many very exciting shows at this venue, and they were not going to let the fans down this week. The start of the feature put the #578 of Matt Wallace and the #9 of Brandon Little on the front row. From the drop of the green, the two battled side by side through the half way point, Wallace low and Little high, door to door. Each driver gave the other just enough room to race, but never touched once. Little was able to clear Wallace and take the lead for a short period before the only caution of the night came out as Roland Brown slowed on the front stretch. On the restart, the two leaders headed back into side by side racing, this time Wallace would be the one pulling into the lead, and holding onto it for the win! Charlie Summers in the #07, Joe Snodgrass in the #34 , and Pete Neal in the 21A rounded out the top 5.

The Series would like to welcome newcomer Steve Clemo As he took the wheel of the 88 owned by Bill Brown Jr.

The Series takes a 2 week break before heading to Winchester Speedway in Virginia.

Snodgrass Braves the Cold and Takes the Season Opener at Susquehanna Speedway Park!
The teams loaded up and rolled into Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday night for the 2013 Season Opener. After preparing for months, the teams anxiously awaited their chance at showing off what their work had accomplished. The warm, sunny Saturday quickly turned brisk and breezy as night fell. In the feature, Joe Snodgrass quickly took control with his #34 machine with the defending Series Champion, Matt Wallace #578, staying glued to his rear bumper. In the end, Snodgrass was able to hold off Wallace for the win in the first race of 2013! Steve Cantwell #20, Charlie Summers #07, and Pete Neal #21A rounded out the top 5. The Series would like to welcome newcomer Dan Little. Dan ran his first race with the Series and judging by the smile on his face, he had a great time. Roland Brown returns to the Series in his new ride. Roland a long time veteran with the Series put together his coupe for 2013, thanking Straight Up Custom Homes for his sponsorship support.

The 20 lap feature event sponsored by Signature Property Services went caution free and as an added bonus for Snodgrass he was able to enjoy a fresh 3' sub provided by Rock-It Pizza and Subs located in Etters, PA.


The great folks at Rock-It will be providing the Series subs for each feature winner throughout the entire season at Susquehanna Speedway Park. Stop by the shop and pick up some great food and tell them thanks for their support. Be sure to bring your track tri-fold for 10% off your order. A great deal for some great food.


Join us this coming Saturday as we head to the high banked bull ring known as Path Valley Speedway. The series put on some barn burners there last year so be sure to come check us out this week!
